A variety of applications are available which support various functions within a Secondary School. Used in secondary schools throughout Ontario.
Most visitors to this web-site will likely be existing users of the Nesterenko Software Timetable Assistant Application
If you are a new visitor, feel free to contact me at PeteSelf@NesterenkoSoftware.com.

The Timetable Assistant Application is used by Timetablers throughout the province of Ontario. The app is explained below.

In order to build a Master Schedule effectively, you need 'Visual', 2-dimensional grid-like reports to really 'see' the Master Schedule that you are building. The Timetable Assistant Application provides those necessary reports (and much more), and eliminates the need for the many little 'manual' mini-lists that timetablers usually create in order to be able to properly analyze the Master Schedule as it is being built.
I am a retired teacher. I was involved in the Staffing/Sectioning/Timetabling process for many years. I developed the Timetable Assistant Application to help me with the Timetabling process. I shared it with colleagues in other schools. Upon retirement I now sell it. Most orders come from word-of-mouth. Most users renew annually. Many users have been using the app for seven or more years.
This app is compatible with 'Trillium' school boards (although it can be tailored to work with other School Administration Systems).
I understand reluctance to try something different. If a little interested, perhaps check within other schools in your board and get opinion from other 'current' users. This app is used in many 'Trillium' school boards throughout Ontario.

I would be happy to send you no-charge, a fully-functional 'Trial Version' and provide any necessary help to get you started. Try it for a few weeks. $200 +HST - one-year school license, if you decide to purchase.
The most commonly used application is the Timetable Assistant Application . The most commonly used report within the Timetable Assistant Application is the Master Schedule Report which takes the Master Schedule by Course Section Report data, imports it, and displays it in the following easy-to-read, grid-like report. There are many, many other reports but this is the most-commonly used report. No data entry required. A few mouse clicks and the user has the latest Master Schedule in this format. Click on report for printable pdf version.
